The “Wiener Test”

Every region has its very own slang.
Vienna has one too, and sometimes i hear words that make me giggle instantly, and that for hours.

Now there is a test to check how good your viennese slang is!

Clickety Click

I guess the test only makes sense for german readers.
But to give the english readers a few examples (they probably want make you laugh though):

Nymphomaniac: “Nudlfriedhof” = Noodle-Cemetery
VW beetle: “Asphalt-Tuttl” = Asphalt-Boob (tit)

My score was beyond bad. I admit it.

    thanks for the info Daniela. it’s always heartwarming for me to read expressions like that and be reminded of the strange charme of Vienna and its languange that i sometimes miss…

    i scored 83%, which can only mean that it’s not difficult enough :-) but very amusing, yes.

    Thanks Daniela,
    What can I say, four correct out of the first five and after that it was all downhill.
    Maybe it is time for me to move to Vienna – I think !
